A tribute gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy to the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a special occasion or honor a person’s life and accomplishments. Make a tribute gift with a simple donation, a beautiful wood bench or a newly planted tree. Your donation adds beauty to the Frederick Law Olmsted Parks.
